Just because it's built for a touch screen doesn't mean it'll suddenly handle amazing when the actual control scheme itself isn't too good for certain games. If I made an amazing cake and made it out of shit, it still tastes of shit regardless of how perfect the cake is. Touch controls can't compete with controllers or keyboard and mouse for action titles, hence why stick-on anolog sticks and Bluetooth controllers are being made for the devices. I haven't used any but really want to.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy HD coming to iOS this fall

Quote:
Originally announced back in January during Capcom's 10-year anniversary celebration for the series, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy HD will bring upscaled remasters of the original three DS games to iOS 5.0 devices sometime this fall.

While the trilogy app itself will be free to download, the games themselves (Ace Attorney, Justice for All and Trials and Tribulations) must be purchased, either separately or as a bundle, with the first two chapters of Ace Attorney serving as a demo. At the moment, no pricing information has been given, either for the games' individual costs or their bundle total.

The port also includes "Everybody Object" mode, which allows the user to email or tweet animated gifs and sound files of Phoenix Wright catch phrases, which we're sure will not be abused or instantly run into the ground by every single person we know.

There are some screens shots of it on the link. It's looking nice.

of course it does - but if you were a dev, putting games onto iOS guarantees some more profit, even though it is the worse version

but in anycase, it has been reimagined/reworked for us dumb ios users

if I was a dev, I would only want the best version out there. I don't want people to play a crap version of my game and then thinking the rest of my games suck and not buy them.

How? Some of the later challenges in that game are really tough and using the touchpad interface would just make it frustrating as hell.
